Package: knode
Version: 4:3.3.2-3
Severity: normal

Every time I reply to a cross-posted newsgroup posting, KNode
automatically sets the Followup-To header to the first group on the
list, even if I don't subscribe to it.  Usually I don't want to set
the Followup-To header at all, and I have to remember to manually
change it for each message I post.  There is no way to configure this
behaviour or to disable it completely.

I think this is a "normal bug" rather than a wishlist item because it
adversely affects the functionality of posting and annoys not only
KNode users but also other people reading newsgroups in which KNode
users accidentally set Followup-To headers.

Bug 68732 in the KDE bug tracking system refers to this but the
developers have been unresponsive.  I would be grateful if the Debian
developers would put pressure on them to fix this.
